Cupping Improved Energy Flow

Cupping is a massage modality that finds its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. The practice uses glass cups to create a vacuum seal on areas of the body. The suction created by this seal brings blood to the surface of the skin and is thought to help expel negative energies from the body. Although cupping is not painful, the recipient commonly walks away with circular bruises on the areas where the cups were applied.

In traditional Chinese medicine, cupping is used to improve the energy flow throughout the body. The bruises caused by the procedure are thought to be the negative energy elements coming to the surface and exiting the body. The cups can be placed over the traditional energy collection points, which are also stimulated during acupuncture and shiatsu massage.

A healthy energy flow is thought to improve both the physical and mental well-being of the client.

The bruises caused by the cups will clear in 4 to 5 days, few patients might develop mild allergic type reactions or in rare cases blisters on the bruised areas, it all depends on your body’s immune system.

Cupping Therapy Procedure

The use of cups on affected areas creates a localized pressure that acts as a vacuum to draw blood to the surface and facilitate healing. Experienced Evergreen Massage & Steam practitioners tailor treatments to achieve both therapeutic and stress relieving effects to harmonize the energy pathways of the body.

Mainstream Medicine in China

According to Eastern healing philosophy, cupping therapy induces the balanced flow of “Qi” energy through the body’s organs and tissues that triggers the natural release of harmful toxins. Safe and effective, cupping therapy is considered a mainstream form of medicine in China and practiced at most hospitals with great success.
